“The Hunger Skateparks team customized and created a plan for our specific needs.  The installation of the elements was amazing to watch as the construction team worked well together.  As onlookers of the construction process noted, “They work like a well-oiled machine.”   We were proud not only to have Hunger Skateparks build our facility, but proud to have them in our town.”

“Not only does this park skate good for users on all levels, it looks amazing too, and it is more than obvious to anyone, that the park was built with love for skateboarding and the aspect of building skate-terrain. So many neat details are included that you rarely see in todays skateparks, and Bart Smith is responsible for it all. His analytical skills, his artistic sense and approach, and his outstanding work-ethics are far superior to anyone I’ve ever seen.”

“They (Hunger) were happy to hold multiple meetings in order to gather ideas and encourage overall project involvement.  Design was completed in approximately 6 weeks.  Hunger Skateparks also furnished a sample design of similar square footage to use for Henry County Food and Beverage Grant 2016, which the City of New Castle-Park Board was awarded $275,000.00.”
